Airline Safety Announcements

by on Apr.01, 2009, under Miscellaneous

I’ve sat through my share of airline safety announcements and, to be perfectly honest, I pretty much ignore them now. Southwest Airlines appears to have a somewhat different approach in allowing their attendants leeway to deliver it in non-standard ways. I mentioned this to a friend who is a retired 757 pilot for United the first time I flew Southwest and heard a humourous version of the spiel and he indicated that this would not be allowed on most airlines due to the fact that the announcement is federally mandated. Personally, I far prefer an amusing delivery and reckon that a whole lot more people actually listen to this kind of thing than the usual, dry announcement.

My wife stumbled upon this example yesterday. I give this guy full marks for excellent delivery!
